It’s helped us integrate and expand the universe of clinical operational trial data so we can target sites and countries that help us deliver on our development portfolio and think through various strategic parameters like the competitive landscape, our peers’ activity, historical knowledge about sites and feedback from outreached sites. With these insights and the ability to model different scenarios, we can continue to optimize recruitment and enhance the accuracy of our projections, setting our clinical trial development on a continuous improvement cycle.”
